This weekend (August 13-14, 2011), Howard Alan Events is proud to present the 5th Annual Main Street to the Rockies Art Festival in Frisco, Colorado. This will be our last stop in the Western Tour until 2012!
Historic Downtown Frisco will once again host Main Street to the Rockies Art Festival this summer, August 13 – 14, 2011, on the heels of its successful July 4th Weekend Green art fair. This popular juried art show features the finest artists in the country as well as top talent from throughout the state of Colorado. Main Street in Frisco’s charming downtown will be closed to traffic transforming this quaint area into an outdoor art gallery with a wide variety of original works on display and for sale.
Admission is free and open to the public. Times are Saturday & Sunday 10am-5pm. The navigational address is: 304 Main St., Frisco, CO 80443.
Here are a few of the artists you will see this weekend:
Claudia Ariss: Glass
The first artist we would like to introduce to you is Claudia Ariss. Claudia’s work is best described as contemporary, one-of-a-kind window and wall glass sculpture. Myriad elements make up her pieces: Kokomo head glass, glass rondels, “Bronzed” or oiled hardwood branches, a variety of beads, agates, shells, wire-wrapping, and freshwater pearls. The possibilities are endless! You can see more of Claudia’s beautiful work HERE.
Steve Malavolta: Wood
Next, we have Steve Malavolta. Steve creates the most beautiful and intricate puzzles out of wood. Pictured above, you will see a 14 Layer Puzzle with approximately 300 hand-cut & finished pieces from Wenge & Maple.
Holly Sokol: Jewelry
The final artist we are going to share with you is Holly Sokol. Holly is fascinated by universal designs, visual rhythms of shapes, colors and combinations of groupings and application of those concepts to design. It has been proven that certain designs and combinations of groups, colors effect the human perception and spirit in pleasing (and negative) ways. Each piece, no matter how large or small has thoughtfully been designed with a rhythm and design in mind to please the human spirit. You can view more of Holly’s bright and vibrant pieces HERE.
You will be able to meet these artists above along with 100 of the top artists from across the United States. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at 561-746-6615 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
